30-26? What round constituted a 10-8?

I thought the first round was competitive but Gustafsson clearly took control over the last two. He still has a lot to work on. His chin is definitely sturdy, but he needs to improve his striking defense. If Rua wasn't so tired, he would have probably dismissed Gustaf from his consciousness.

That being said, I'm impressed by Gustaf, but at the same time I'm not convinced he will have anything for Jones at all, and I'm not quite convinced he could beat Rashad, Henderson or Machida.
